About XRDur

Launched in 2009, XRDur, is a Durham University research centre which operates across various areas of science which are reliant on X-ray techniques.

Our members are drawn from the Departments of Chemistry, Earth Science, Biological and Biomedical Science, Physics and Archaeology.

We have interests in many areas of X-ray science including diffraction, trace element analysis, reflectometry, tomography, photoemission, small-angle scattering and EXAFS. These techniques are applied to research areas ranging from protein crystallography to condensed matter physics.
